About Timothy Roderick
I am a native to southern California and live in Los Angeles. I have a background in clinical psychology and have worked for the last quarter century in the fields of education and in clinical settings.
My writing process is influenced by my decades- long interest in esoteric and occult topics ranging from the the revival of pre-industrial age customs and practices to shamanism and Zen Buddhism.
As I write, I often find myself where magic meets myth, where the supernatural meets mind-states, and where action and consequence intersect. I explore these themes across genres.
Nonfiction works include (among other titles) COVR finalist Wicca: A Year and a Day, and Small Press Award Winner Dark Moon Mysteries, which was also a Time-Warner Book of the Month Club selection.
My debut fantasy novel, Briar Blackwood’s Grimmest of Fairytales (Lodestone Press, 2015) was inspired by a longtime interest in fairy tales and their roots in the human psyche. In One Crooked Thing (Amazon, 2020) and Nine Zero One Three (Amazon, 2023) I revisit the myths and magic of my Catholic upbringing as well as a variety magical paths that have intertwined with this faith across history.
